Electrical problem - landlord's or tenant's to fix

Hello,
Just got back home to find a circuit breaker had tripped. Now refusing to go back up despite having disconnected all appliances on that particular circuit.
Coincidentally, painters sent by the landlord were working on an external storage room ( which is on that circuit ) when I left home.
Definitely not just a run of the mill issue.
Do I need to get this fixed or should the landlord?
This has for sure been addressed in previous threads but couldn't find any recent ones....
TIA.

Landlord should fix this one.

Also be sure all lamps (if any) are turned off when you try to get the Switch back on, would be expensive if due to coincidence one of your lamps is at fault.

Thanks EdwinNL.
All lamps installed by us have been switched off. A fridge that belongs to us has been moved to another circuit and it's working fine.
I also looked inside the storage room and the floor is wet, there's some water in the power point there. Has to be that.

Just give it another try tomorrow morning and if still not working call the landlord.
(unless, it is an emergency offc but does not sound like it.)

Surely you could take stuff out and dry it yourself, but it is not your job to do so.
